CVA capital charges jumped 50% at systemic US banks in Q1

All eight US global systemically important banks (G-Sibs) saw their credit valuation adjustment (CVA) capital requirements surge dramatically in the first three months of the year, reflecting chaotic trading conditions triggered by the coronavirus crisis.

Aggregate risk-weighted assets across the G-Sibs for CVA increased by $90.6 billion (+50%) to $271.4 billion in Q1. Minimum capital requirements are set as 8% of RWAs, meaning the aggregate charge for CVA was $21.7 billion at end-March.
